    The font for the song playing on the Slide to Unlock screen is different, and it says the bands name and album when you press the home button twice on the SLU screen.

    Home button has more options when you double-click it, like camera and search.

    Already got it, number 12

    I can't verify this since none of my iPod music imports in 3.0 :/ Can you do a screenshot, or can anyone else verify this?

    Safari had several other updates like it looks for phishing websites.

    What about just faster OS. Things open and close faster. Its not a huge difference but as long as I'm not get (beta) lag, it just runs smoother. I might be going crazy but even safari seems to zoom faster when it renders text.

    • Turn-by-turn directions. Developers will also be able to create turn-by-turn applications using the GPS information from the iPhone and combining it with their own maps, without depending on 3G connectivity or Google.

    -Maps inside other applications. New applications will be able to use Maps directly, which is now an API.

    • Use your iPhone/touch to control peripherals. A new API will let you use your iPhone or iPod touch as a control to your accessories.

    • Peer-to-peer Wi-Fi Bluetooth connectivity. A new API will allow for two iPhones to connect directly—peer-to-peer—via Bluetooth Wi-Fi, without needing any Wi-Fi network.

    • Voice memo application. Obviously, allows you to record voice or any other sound, so you don't forget any idea or want to play FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper.

    Send and receive files. A dedicated application to exchange files between iPhones or iPods touch.

    • Extended parental controls. Adult content filters can now be applied to movies, TV shows, and applications, in addition to web sites and music (porn apps, here we come).

    • Anti-phishing. Mobile Safari now can warn you against malicious sites trying to scam you.

    • Wi-Fi auto-login. In case you have a subscription to a paid hotspot, your iPhone or iPod touch will autolog into it.

    • Automatic login in Safari. The new version of Safari will remember login credentials, so you won't need to introduce your username and password again while accessing Scoreland your work intranet.

    • Note syncing with iTunes.

    • Stereo Bluetooth A2DP audio. You will be able to pair your iPhone 3.0 with a stereo Bluetooth A2DP device, like headphones or speakers

    • Improved stocks application. The stocks application now allows you to read related news, so you can enjoy yourself learning about the latest market scandals, stock crashes, and executives getting bonus packages from government aid while their companies sink into hell.

    • Support for new calendar types. In iPhone OS 3.0 you will be able to subscribe to calendars on the web using two protocols: CalDAV—supported by Google and Yahoo—and subscriptions via the .ics format—which is what Apple uses in iCal.

    • Search in Mail, Calendar, and iPod. These Apple applications have specific search interfaces. The search in Mail doesn't support the message content yet, but it supports searching in IMAP servers—that will save a lot of time logging into Gmail.

    sorry if ( I definitly did ) mention anything twice or inacurate.

    I can't find turn by turn, is that something to be added later?

    It's just the capability, now we just need Garmin or TomTom to write an app and put it on the app store.

    A lot of features can't be used in the beta such as push notifications and turn by turn. These are left to the developers to create the apps in time for the real 3.0 release.

    When you take a photo, it shrinks to a thumbnail of the image where the camera roll icon used to be in the lower left.

    Got it, #13. You worded it better though, I'll try and make it more clear.
  19. psylichon

    psylichon Moderator

    Oh no, that's way more concise. I just missed it.
  20. psylichon

    Though you might want to augment #20 to include Auto-Fill of personal contact info as well.
